**************************************************************************

Ok, so this was a bad joke – but the fact of the matter is that you probably found at least SOME of those answers to be true.

That needs to be fixed.

Below you will find ALL of the providers that I have used, can recommend and would HIGHLY suggest that you start using. They will save you money, time and drastically increase your bottom line. Knowing that someone else is getting the job done can greatly increase the satisfaction that you get from running your own business.

They are also great service providers. In other words, they know how to take care of you BEYOND just providing the service and that is more than anyone can ask for.

My List Of Awesome People

Virtual Assistants/Customer Support

Faith Spradling – Customer Support

I can’t say enough good things about Faith. She is hard working, a bright smile and more loyal than the mob. I have had to cut back her hours recently due to the fiasco my SEO manager has put me in, so I would love for those of you on the fence thinking about hiring a VA – to contact her. She is AWESOME.

Jennylyn Garcia – General VA

You give Jennylyn a task, and she is off to the races. I loved working with her because I NEVER had to hold her hand. Stuff like scraping contact details for lead gen, doing link building etc. she is the BEST! Again, I have had to reduce her work hours, so I would love to try and help her out.

Designer/Tech

Enrico Bobier – Designer

I don’t know why, but ever since I got online I wanted to be able to hire a full-time designer. I probably went through 20 different designers (that would be a conservative estimate) before I finally found Enrico. This guy is the MAN! Hard working, fast and doesn’t need you to hold his hand. I wish that I didn’t have to reduce his hours, but I do and that means you get to benefit from him! If you need ANYTHING designed, this guy is your go to man. I had this entire site designed for less than $30.

Techy Tiff – Tech Support 

Tiffany is actually a brand new find for me – but OMG she is a lifesaver! I needed the entire craigslist scraper updated and she did it in 2 hours for less than $25 bucks. I can tell you from experience, you can’t find that kind of tech support ANYWHERE! And she is super versatile – she can do everything from coding websites to doing fixes in software programs. If you need a quick tech thing solved, give her a ring (or send her a message).

Writers

Lina Duarte-Aristizabal – American Writer

Lina was great – we had her pumping out BORING articles 40 hours per week and she was right there keeping up and not complaining. The great thing about her is that she isn’t afraid to do a little bit extra – like uploading the content, coming up with content ideas etc. Her college education is actually in writing so you know she knows what she is doing.

Elena Shella Villamor – Pinay Writer

Elena is awesome! I don’t know where she learned her english, but her articles are darn near Lina’s level. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

SEO

Either do this yourself OR hire this guy:

John Moore’s Service

(Secret time – We are testing this software with brand new sites and are seeing some promise – Backlink Beast)

Project Management

Asana

Asana is by far my favorite project management software, just because it is free and can do nearly everything that Basecamp can do. If you combine Asana with a Google calendar, you essentially have all of the useful functionality of Basecamp for free.

Zoho CRM

I wasn’t sure where to put this in the list, but essentially this is a free CRM solution where you can keep track of all of your clients. It is SUPER useful when it comes to tracking clients, knowing when to close and ESPECIALLY useful if you picked up these guides on how to recruit a commission only sales force:

OFFLINE Phone Force

Commission Only Sales Recruitment Made Quick & Easy

Best Guides For Getting Clients Quick And Easy

I already mentioned the commission only sales recruitment guides above.

Here are some of my other favorites:

Linkedinfluence

I just want through a pretty fierce re-branding and using Linkedinfluence I have 3 new clients under the NEW branding within a week. Start learning from people who actually do and know what they are talking about. The author of this guide is legit.

The 60-Second Sales Hook

You don’t need to buy the whole course if you don’t want, but just getting the free training is going to put you above and beyond your competitors.

(I will add more courses to this section as I find and implement them. The two that I have listed here are once that I actually purchased with no intent of promoting, tested myself and have had success with. Check back for more to come.)

Looking For Less Expensive Outsourcing Options?

Sometimes you just need a quick one-off and you don’t want to deal with the hiring process. For that I have shared my master spreadsheet of Warrior Forum offerings and Fiverr gigs.

The Master Spreadsheet

So there you have it! Go out there, hire these people and quit stressing yourself out so much! All you need to do is set up the system, plug these people in and they will literally make money for you while you sleep/go do other fun stuff.

To your success!

P.S. Please don’t forget to share this post with others. You never know who you are going to be able to help by simply sharing.

P.P.S. What sorts of service providers would you like recommendations for? I certainly have plenty more people that I work with – let me know in the comments below and I will add those to this list.

      Thanks Terry – Hope you are able to access it and turn it into some money making solutions!

  3. Aaron says:

    Wow Mike, This is better than almost any WSO I’ve every purchased. This is some super valuable information (that I kind of wish you would just delete know that I have it :). Much, much appreciated!

  4. ron says:

    You have done a great service for the worker bees..many thanks!!

    • admin says:

      Without my team I would be nothing. They deserve nothing but the best and I hope that this post gives them more opportunities than I can currently provide.

  5. Dave says:

    Thanks for this. I am trying to find some decent proof readers. Do you know any?

    • admin says:

      I just contacted a guy who offered several proofing suggestions in the past – I never hired him personally but his suggestions were brilliant – as soon as he responds, I will add his information here.

    Hey Mike,

    I am a client of yours and am saddened at the bump you are recovering from. I can verify your faith in Faith (lame gag, I’m afreud, just wanted to bring down the tone from above). I will give some of your guys some stuff to do while you get back up on your feet.

    I’m really glad to hear you are dumping WF.

    I’ve got a lot of faith in you (no gag) and my feedback is that flogging that crap is very jarring for the view I have of your brand. I realize you need to make dough but it might be better to reach out to your friends -maybe WE can help- rather than head for their pockets the way the others do it. Not criticizing here.

    And (getting long this one) I was just discussing the IM trend to do these so-called roladex lists of outsourcers. Fashion. Seems they always turn out to be anything but what the IMer really uses — I can think of one of them who didn’t even have the sense to leave off the bottom of her list, a paragraph asking anyone who wanted to get their services on her private list -of tried and true people she uses and trusts- to get in touch with her!

    This list of yours is so refreshing and so much in line with how I see you as an integrity person.

    Thank you so much for publishing it and I particularly like that you are doing it to help your suppliers and not exploit them.

    We’ll all get through, Mike. Keep going strong.

      Hello Peter,

      Thanks for your comment.

      I appreciate the kind words and honesty. This has been a beautifully terrible experience. One that I won’t soon forget, but one that has jarred me enough to see the light (as you can read here: http://www.mikeshreevetheauthor.com/my-kindle-journey-case-study-april-8th-2013/).

      My team (barring one individual) has been nothing but great and I hope only too earnestly that they will be given opportunities from you guys to make up for my having to make business decisions – decisions that are crushing me inside.

      We can only move onward and upward.

      Mike

    Hi Mike – thanks so much for sharing your good resources here – very generous. I’m going to try BacklinkBeast too – are you using it as the ONLY source of link building to a site OR do you add in some better quality links for the tier one links from elsewhere?

    thanks again :)

    • admin says:

      Hi Mel,

      We are using it in conjunction with some other methods – I will be sharing those techniques here on the blog in a few days.

  8. Mel says:

    thanks a bunch :) :)

    hi mike,

    thank you so much for the great resources. Was wondering if you also have anyone to do cold calling for you, make videos or do keyword research?
